She was a founding member of St. Vincent de Paul Church, Vestal, and served as trustee, parish council member and Religious Education instructor for many years. She was also active in the Women's Club. Ann was an active and avid Democrat. She served on the New York State Democratic Committee for twelve years and the Broome County Democratic Executive Committee for twelve years. She worked closely with Michon Stuart while she served the Vestal Democratic Party as Chairwoman for four years and Treasurer for six years. She worked on successful campaigns of Congressmen Hinchey and McHugh and Senator Hillary Clinton. Her great joy was the election and re-election of Anndrea Starzak. Ann was certainly proud of her Irish heritage. She was an active member for the past fifteen years in the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians Division I, Broome County and currently was serving as President on the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians Broome County Board. She is a Past President of the LAOH Division I and held other various offices on the Division and County level. Ann received her Major Degree in 1993 in Troy, N.Y. She volunteered countless hours at many Irish events in the organization as well as the community. She was a member of the 1995 Convention Committee held in Binghamton and her love of children was evident in the countless number of hours she devoted to Project Children. As a result of her hard work and dedication to the organization, she was chosen as LAOH Division I Woman of the Year for 2001. Ann's warm heart and Irish smile is one her sister and brother Hibernians will not soon forget. Until we meet again may God hold you in the palm of his hand. She was loved by her children and grandchildren and will be missed by her family and many friends. Funeral services will be held at the J.A.
